Well, if you read my post before jumping to conclusions, you would see that I likened the direction of the US to the Third Reich not because some
deep-seated xenophobia, but do to this push for State Capitalism. Kick the illegals out, we need an all America economy! End globalization, made in
America rah rah rah! You are putting your faith and your money into a hierarchical state instead of humanity...
What will building a wall or increase border protection do? More government spending, more government jobs, more government agencies, government
expansion, more taxation. More draconian measures similar to the PATRIOT Act.
Where we ultimately differ is our approach to the State - you claim to be anti-government this, anti-government that, but ultimately you're still a
statist. I don't believe in the need for a state, so of course our views on immigration differ.
Here's some ideas that would work in the real world, since my ideals will most likely never come to fruition: American can legalize drugs. It would
be a source of jobs, a commodity to tax and it would eliminate the need for the cartels, who would crumble without their cash crop. With the cartels
out of the picture, Mexico's infrastructure would begin to turn around, and illegal immigration would slow.
We are hypocrites if America lashes out at people who cross the border while countless numbers of Americans are consuming drugs produced by those who
are causing the immigrants to flee north. Likewise, we would also be hypocrites if we preached about freedom and liberty and yet continued this
